Clarkson hears first reading of smoking ban

Clarkson took the first steps Monday toward becoming the second Grayson County community to enact a public smoking ban.
On a 4-0 vote, city commissioners approved the first reading of an ordinance restricting lighting up in spaces such as restaurants and convenience stores, after recommending some minor changes to the wording.
A second, and possibly final, vote, will be taken at the commission’s March 13 meeting.
